Browns Training Camp: Travis Benjamin Thinks He Can Handle Physical Play

Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Travis Benjamin is proving in training camp that, just because he is undersized, he isn't afraid of contact.

The 5-10 Miami (Fla.) product has been answering questions about his height and skinny frame his whole life, via Jodie Valade of The Plain Dealer:

"Even though I might be small in size, I've been playing football ever since I've been young and mostly all of the guys are bigger than me," Benjamin said. "I've got to keep that mindset that I've got to play big."

...

"That's all a part of football -- being physical," he said. "There's not one player on the field that's not physical. Every time, every play has contact. I'm used to it."

Head coach Pat Shurmur said that Benjamin and Josh Gordon both are on pace to become "major contributors" with the way they have performed in camp thus far.
